taken into custody. nbc's reporter is live for us in london. a crazy story overnight. what is the latest? >> yeah, good morning, bill. south african police say they received a call early this morning after reports that there had been a shooting at the home of oscar pistorius. they found paramedics trying to revive a woman. she died at the scene. it's believed that woman is oscar pistorius' girlfriend, the model. tributes have started coming in for her and her publicist described it as a huge loss. there is still lots of uncertainty about this. some speculation that pistorius shot his girlfriend after mistaking her for an intruder. perhaps she had been trying to surprise him for valentine's day. just yesterday she wrote on twitter what do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow? police say they found a nine millimeter pistol at pistorius' home. and pistorius in the past has spoken about keeping guns in his house. they have the highest rates of violent crime. many homeowners do keep weapons to defend themselves against intruders. >> that would be an amazing case of mistaken identity
